Dubai Real Estate & Residential Units
Highlighting the growth in Dubai’s real estate sector and its post-pandemic resiliency, over 40,000 expected residential units will be handed over by the end of 2022.

Number of Residential Units
The number of Dubai residential units in total, including apartments and villas, was reported to be at a total of 657,000 end of March with the expected delivery of 42,000 additional residential units by the end of the year, totaling close to 700,000.

Supply of Completed Residential Units
Based on quarterly surveys of Abu Dhabi and Dubai metropolitan areas that reflect units that have been handed over for immediate occupation, with the expectation for the year ahead being another successful one with continuous increase in demand, transaction volume and new project launches.

UAE Real Estate Growth
The growth of the UAE real estate market can be accredited to several factors including the government’s response and management of the pandemic, the healthcare industry’s efforts and the successful vaccination drive.

New Updates
Recent updates to the UAE Golden Visa regulation are just another great initiative that will spur investment into real estate even more, especially with the flexibility that these new rules have to offer, providing residents with a strong reason to invest in the country long term and allowing non-residents to make UAE their second home, the report further outlined.
